“Using artifacts from Cooper-Hewitt’s collection, we at IDEO present an object-centered entry into design thinking—an approach to problem-solving that is inherent in us as humans, as we seek to improve what already exists and create what does not.

To illustrate what we describe as design thinking, we have chosen objects which demonstrate innovative problem-solving over the past five centuries. Their diversity of intent, media, and context reveals a shared story about the ways in which the designer interacts with the world, whether for personal reasons or popular benefit.” Excerpt from the Guest Curator’s Statement.
